A great success at last year’s Boston Palestine Film Festival, this story of forbidden love is the first fiction feature set in Gaza in 15 years. After two Palestinian college students are forced to return home to Gaza, their families try everything to keep them apart—while the students do everything they can to stay connected.

The Museum of Fine Arts also offers free admission on Wednesdays after 4pm.  We encourage you to come to the Museum before the film screening and check out the great Art of the Ancient World exhibition, which includes wonderful pieces from across the Middle East.
